The above errors comes generally when there is an issue in domain trust security settings. If two WebLogic instances belong to different WebLogic domains, the domain credential must be the same for both instances.

To solve the above issues we need to enable trust between two/more WebLogic Server domains and explicitly specify the same value for the credential in both WebLogic Server domains.

Please follow the steps to enable domain trust between two or more weblogic domains

OR

Enabling Trust Between WebLogic Server Domains

Few places you might see the Error Type 4 this usually happens when there is a cached password which does not match with the Admin Server password i.e if the domain credential is changed using the Admin Console and then the Admin Server is restarted without shutting down the Managed Server.

So after enabling domain trust or cross domain security make sure you shutdown all managed servers and then Admin Server and start it in reverse order, i.e Admin first and then all rest managed servers to avoid seeing these errors.
